Jujutsu Kaisen fans divided over the potential return of this missing character

Published

Jujutsu Kaisen Nobara’s fate after her supposed death was never confirmed, but now fans are divided over her potential return to the series.

Nobara’s last appearance in Jujutsu Kaisen dates back to the Shibuya Drama Arc. After her brief fight with Mahito, she was supposedly killed by the scourge. However, his corpse was never shown and his death was never explicitly confirmed.

His ambiguous death sparked a lot of speculation among fans. Many believed this was intentional, suggesting an imminent return of Nobara in the future. But so far there has been no sign of his return.

It has been a long time since she disappeared from Gege Akutami’s work. After this famous incident, three entire arcs have passed, namely the Yuji Execution Arc, the Hunt Preparations Arc and finally the Murderous Hunt Arc. And now that we’re well into the Battle of Shinjuku Arc, some fans are losing hope that he will survive.

While it was once a unanimous belief within the community, Nobara’s return now divides everyone. Some still believe it, given that she was a main character and the mangaka would never leave such a loophole without a plan, while others feel that it is too late for her to return.

Jujutsu Kaisen is currently heading towards the end of the Battle of Shinjuku arc. In the battle against Sukuna, most of the strong characters have already fallen. And those who aren’t, with the exception of Yuta, are in no position to defeat the one considered the greatest exorcist in history.

If Nobara came back now, it wouldn’t make any difference to the current situation. She already wasn’t strong enough to fight the Plague King, and she would be killed for good this time. However, the author could still bring her back for shock value, as he recently did for Todo in chapter 259.

“Everyone said the same thing about Todo and look where we are now”wrote one user on Reddit, while another added: “She will absolutely appear with an eye patch.”

“I want her back especially because her situation has gone unresolved for so long. And if she turns out to be dead or unable to fight, that would just be a disappointment considering how long we’ve waited for an update on her situation,” pointed out a third.

But there are also opposing views. As another user commented, “At this point, there is simply no point in bringing her back. The fight time has already passed as they are basically using their last trump card now with Goyuta.”

“What makes me believe Nobara won’t come back is that she was never highlighted for her potential like Yuji or Megumi,” said another.

A third added, “I think in hindsight it was very obvious that she was really gone, and the guy only said what he said to Yuji so that he wouldn’t lose hope before the decisive fight (count (from the way he saw Yuji collapse earlier).”

Maybe the next chapter of Jujutsu Kaisen, namely chapter 263, will reveal whether Nobara’s return is possible or not. So, don’t miss the sequel to the manga, which will be released on June 30, 2024.
